Wildlife Gallery

Many wild animals found by individuals, as well as domestic animals owned by schools or non-profit organizations, are brought into Montclair Veterinary Hospital for medical treatment. After examination and treatment, animals are returned to their owners or transferred to local wildlife rescue centers for rehabilitation and release.

Your donations to the Pet & Wildlife Fund help us provide medical services to pets and wildlife in need.
